COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — AT&T says it has invested more than $225 million in its wireless and wired networks in Ohio in the first half of this year.
The company says the investments included new macro cell sites, small cells and distributed antenna systems deployed across the state as a part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP.
The three-year investment plan announced last fall will expand and enhance AT&T's IP broadband networks. The company also expanded and enhanced its 4G LTE network that it says provides ultra-fast mobile Internet speeds. The company said AT&T also has provided new Wi-Fi hot spots.
AT&T says the project has also spurred advanced fiber-optic connections to more than 1,000 additional Ohio businesses. The company says the project also has resulted in U-verse services to more than 31,000 customers.
